Charleston, SC (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
SPARC520, an energy analysis and strategy application and platform, now utilizes a virtual Rapid Portfolio Assessment (RPA) to provide valuable energy cost and savings insights. The RPA allows SPARC520 to customize the initial approach to energy strategy and provide targeted guidance for buildings within a portfolio.
SPARC520’s Rapid Portfolio Assessment requires just energy bills and addresses for a portfolio of buildings. Using that data, SPARC’s energy analysts model the energy performance in each building using the SPARC520 application. By taking this approach and using sophisticated software, the team can develop the most cost efficient strategy for the unique portfolio at a fraction of the time and cost of conventional energy audits.
Following the initial assessment, building owners can better determine which buildings in the portfolio require more attention and have the biggest opportunity for energy and cost savings. Using the data collected, SPARC’s analysts can advise whether further data collection and scenario modeling would be a lucrative investment for the building owner.
“The Rapid Portfolio Assessment is part of our ‘walk before you run’ approach to energy strategy. We want to take a look at your current energy performance so that we can make the best recommendations for your unique portfolio,” said Jeff Beck, SPARC520 Product Owner.
SPARC520 empowers users to decrease energy consumption and cut energy costs by making the most informed energy management decisions. The application features both energy monitoring and energy planning capabilities, allowing customers to visualize real-time energy consumption as well as identify opportunities to save money and forecast those savings based on customized energy scenarios.
The SPARC520 user experience can begin with a RPA to offer a high-level view of overall performance, and also includes onsite energy auditing as needed, along with energy scenario modeling, energy strategy implementation assistance, and engagement tools to get building tenants involved in reaching energy goals.
“We’re offering the most comprehensive approach to energy strategy and being Green on the market. Because of our unique approach, we are able to direct customers to the best investments possible, ones we know will result in the best energy savings for their buildings and the quickest ROI. We’re providing custom energy analysis and strategy guidance to achieve the greatest results possible,” Beck said.
